Does anybody remember when Verizon started deploying batches of new LTE markets by the week? Well, it seems that AT&T wants to be in on some of that action. Earlier this month, the second largest carrier launched a string of new sites with the promise of several more to come this summer. As of today, new or expanded coverage came to 20 more locations.

  • Alabama
    • Huntsville
  • Arizona
    • Phoenix (East Mesa and Sun City)
    • Tucson (Oro Valley)
  • Arkansas
    • Monticello
    • Mountain Home
  • Florida
    • Lake City
    • Ocala
  • Louisiana
    • Shreveport / Bossier City
  • Michigan
    • Lansing
  • Mississippi
    • Gulfport / Biloxi
  • New Hampshire
    • Manchester (Nashua)
  • North Carolina
    • Henderson
  • Pennsylvania
    • Mechanicsburg
  • Tennessee
    • Chattanooga
  • Texas
    • Athens
    • Corsicana
    • Huntsville
    • Nacogdoches / Lufkin
    • Paris
  • Washington
    • Centralia

This comes in addition to a 12 other sites that went live over the last couple of weeks.

  • Colorado
    • Denver (Golden and Lakewood)
  • Indiana
    • Kokomo
  • Kentucky
    • Shelbyville
  • Louisiana
    • Metairie
  • Michigan
    • Flint
  • Mississippi
    • Oxford (Batesville along Highway 6, Sardis and South Oxford)
  • Missouri
    • Springfield
  • Oklahoma
    • Cushing
  • South Carolina
    • Florence
  • Virginia
    • Petersburg
  • West Virginia
    • Morgantown
  • Wyoming
    • Cheyenne

While Verizon and AT&T will be shoring up their LTE coverage maps over the next few months, Sprint and T-Mobile are still pretty quiet about plans for expansion. However, with both smaller carriers about to gain access to more money and spectrum, we can probably expect an explosion of similar announcements to start by the end of the year.
